The Protection of Electrostatic Discharge Susceptible Items - Periodic Verification of Air Ionizer Performance Using a Small Test Fixture
|Publication Date:||9 September 2012|
This standard practice establishes measurement procedures, under recommended conditions, to periodically determine offset voltage (ion balance) and discharge (charge neutralization) times for ionizers in their actual use locations. This standard practice does not include measurements of electromagnetic interference (EMI), or uses of ionizers in connection with ordnance, flammables, explosive items, or electrically initiated explosive devices.
This standard practice provides a test fixture example and procedures for performance verification of air ionization used in confined spaces where it may not be possible to use the test fixtures defined in ANSI/ESD STM3.1 or ANSI/ESD SP3.3.
